I'm going to jump into this exchange between George and Jack for just 
a moment to expand the above thought a little.  A sub-assumption of 
the Qumran-DSS-Essene theory is that the sect wrote and/or copied the 
scrolls.  With that sub-assumption, Jack's analogy using the 
diversity of his own library tends to break down.  Gathering books on 
various and diverse subjects, some agreed-with, some not, is quite a 
different activity than acting as a scribe and laboriously cranking 
out handwritten copies of them.
